I started off by using a compass to draw the main circles and arcs you see in the drawing, varying the diameter to get circles that would fit perfectly into the spaces. The rest of the design is done free hand with the aim of making everything rotationally symmetric. That is, you could turn the page by 1/8th of a full circle and end up exactly where you started!
